ORLANDO — An Orlando police officer was rushed by 50 to 75 people Sunday afternoon, some of whom reportedly then punched him, when he tried to arrest a disorderly teen who had refused to leave the Wet 'n Wild water park.

Orange County jail records show that Officer David McKinnon asked Midelend Jean of Deerfield Beach to leave the park because she was verbally abusing employees who asked her not to lie on the gift-shop floor. McKinnon wrote in a charging affidavit obtained by the Orlando Sentinel that he repeatedly asked Jean to leave, but the 18-year-old refused and cursed at him.
